Steeven is a queer social designer. He has been working for 10 years at the non-profit Présâges with people and organizations around the province of Quebec curious to explore aging and the demographic transition in a social innovation perspective. He ran an innovation lab that looks at these challenges through a lens of system change intersecting with housing, food security, social participation, mental health, etc. As a designer, he applies creative practices to participative research processes and knowledge transfer. He currently digs deeper on wise aging and healthier eldership with the Gesturing Toward Decolonial Futures collective. He recently was on the board of the Montreal Seniors Network (TCAÎM) and the social innovation hub Humanov.is before joining the Vanier Institute.
